Some time ago I did an article on using the motor imitations that come with the point drive from
Märklin. It provides a nice little touch and at the same time let's you know that the point is
not a manual one. There is just one problem with these small plastic parts: They fall off. From
time to time, and more often than not, they will simply fall off the point when you handle it.
This article shows you how to take care of that using a nifty product from NOCH or Woodland
I like to use plaster cloth, foam and paper when creating a base for my landscape. This post is
about how I do that. [More]
Dead trees can boost the realism of a forest scene or just add variation to your diorama or model
railway layout. This article is about how I made a simple dead pine tree using an armature from
a Woodland Scenics Realistic Tree Kit and some colours. [More]
Woodland Scenics has a product called Realistic Trees. You can buy them factory assembled or you
can buy them in kits (including both armatures and clump foliage) and assemble them yourself.
The kit price is obviously way cheaper, you can also buy a value-pack of armatures and buy the
clump foliage seperately, which is even cheaper. Check out how I created som really cool pine
trees using the Woodland Scenics kit. [More]
